Yehuda Leibler

Founder at Cortex Group | Partner at Invicta Ventures


About

Yehuda is a Technology Consultant, Investor and Strategist. In 2014 (at age 14) he founded Cortex Group, an innovation consulting firm that grew to become a well-recognized consulting firm in the fields of Digitization, Product Strategy, and Online Cyber Protection. As CEO, Yehuda led Cortex Group's strategy as well as day-to-day operations growing the firm and its client base. In 2018 (at age 18), Yehuda led Cortex Group's merger with two other leading consulting firms, forming Cognita Partners, an international firm serving clients across the globe, where Yehuda serves as a Senior Partner. In 2016 (at age 16), Yehuda joined “Made In JLM”, an economic and tech-empowerment organization as Chief Technology Officer where he led digitization and international tech partnerships with governments, corporations and startups for over 2 years. In 2018 (at age 18), Yehuda, alongside a number of young entrepreneurs, founded Invicta Ventures (formerly “Lavi Fund”), a small Venture Capital Group investing in private and crowd funding deals (portfolio companies include: Innocan Pharma, Tallyfy, Immersed, Twik.io, Gumroad, and others…). Yehuda is an active social entrepreneur, having co-founded Society Labs in 2017 (at age 17), an award-winning initiative connecting non-profits with developers and tech solutions to help them achieve growth and impact. Additionally, during the first few weeks of the Covid-19 pandemic, Yehuda created "CoronaBiz", a platform that became the #1 resource for businesses in Israel during the pandemic. The site later partnerd with local governments and governmental ministries in Israel to help as many struggling business as possible via a governmental web app. Yehuda's social initiatives have won both the WeWork Creator Awards and have been selected for the Facebook community leadership program. Yehuda occasionally writes about technology or politics (but not both) for leading publications such as: The Jerusalem Post, The Times of Israel, International Policy Digest, Hackernoon (where his articles have often been chosen as "top stories"), and others. In 2018, Yehuda was chosen by the President of Israel (Reuven "Rubi" Rivlin) and the IDF chief of staff (Gadi Eisenkot) as one of Israel's 70 most promising young entrepreneurs. Having been born In Australia, and raised in Israel by an American Mom and an Australian Dad, Yehuda is fluent in both english and Hebrew. Yehuda is also proficient in Persian.
